The Technical Advisory Committees (TAC) act as advisors to the Advisory Council for Medical Assistance. Each TAC represents a specific provider type or are individuals representing Medicaid beneficiaries. The TACs are created by Kentucky Revised Statute 205.590. Members of most TACs are appointed by the professional association represented. For instance, the Dental Care TAC consists of five dentists appointed by the Kentucky Dental Association. If you are interested in serving as a TAC member, please contact one of the organizations with appointment authority for that committee. The Department for Medicaid Services does not make appointments to the TACs.
TAC members are not compensated beyond reimbursement for actual and necessary expenses.
All TAC meetings are subject to Kentucky Open Records and Kentucky Open Meetings Act statutes KRS 61.800 - 884.

DMS Social Media Channels
Medicaid uses social media to share important information related to health policy, program updates, health observances, staff profiles, and other general news topics. Connecting with the department on one - or all - of these platforms is a great way to stay up-to-date on Medicaid-related news.
